” President Trump ought to win the Nobel Peace Prize. What we require is just peace,” Moon informed a cabinet meeting, according to a presidential Blue House official who briefed media.
Moon and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Friday pledged to end hostilities in between the two countries and work to the “complete denuclearisation” of the Korean peninsula in the very first inter-Korean summit in more than a decade.
Trump is preparing for his own summit with Kim in late May or early June.
That upcoming conference was the main topic of a private walk and chat that Kim and Moon had during their meeting at the border, the official stated.
In January, Moon stated Trump “deserves big credit for causing the inter-Korean talks. It might be a resulting work of the US-led sanctions and pressure.”
